Huawei Ascend P6 Review
The unibody design of the Ascend P6 means that the 2000 mAh battery is sealed, so you can't easily swap it out, though the HD screen and the humble processor aren't known as battery hogs. Huawei hasn't posted official talk times yet, and in our review experience with the phone it can last you a day with average usage, which is about the norm.
With its combination of curved lines and sharp metal edges, the slimmest phone out there is undoubtedly one of the most elegant designs we've seen, too, and not only in the Android world.
The Ascend P6 gets almost all major smartphone details right except for the mediocre camera, which has some issues both with pictures and video. For about 400 (USD or EUR), we can't complain if something is lacking on a midranger, especially in such a thin and light package.
Direct competitors are other midrange Android handsets with similar specs like the LG Optimus G / Nexus 4, Samsung Galaxy S III or the Sony Xperia SP. With the exception of the glass chassis on the LG, they don't sport premium designer looks, so if you want a looker with the latest version of Android without breaking the bank, the Ascend P6 deserves your consideration.
Software version: P6-U06V100R001C00B106
- Svelte metallic design
- Pentaband radio
- Subpar camera
- Feels sluggish compared to other quad-core phones

Not a bad deal for $400. Especially with a 4.7" display in such a small chassis.

For the price this should get a 8.5 based on the review. Very solid piece of gadget, someone any Galaxy, Lumia, Optimus, um... iPhone user will look at and ask what ti is. :)

I love how narrow it is. I hate wide phones; so uncomfortable to hold.
